    Sounds extremely plausible that he'd feel that way, and I've said myself that bee all along has not been the bee in the original sense, since the live action franchise began he's been more of a original hot rod based character but is obviously the new incarnation of bumblebee....so yes I could actually also see them paying homage to the originals that way by having hot rod as a red herring. There's so many possibilities with this one....its impossible to know for sure....

    I would /LOVE/ to see the voice box incident on the big screen, but I highly doubt that'll ever happen.

    Not a plot speculation, but do you think that Travis Knight will bring in his company Laika to co-produce the Bee film?

    He is himself an animator in stop-motion, so I can (also) see him incorporating stop-motion VFX into the film.

    I don't see how stop motion would really work in this kind of situation.

    It seems like that would be pretty jarring, stop motion and CGI in the same movie.

    Yeah, I love old school stop motion, but Bumblebee would look a bit odd fighting 80's ED209!

    Baaah!! It's a prequel so unless he's going back in time to tell Optimus to leave him alone, I'm wrong!! No surprise there lol

    Just to update the speculation here! My money's on Bee movie being world war two.

    IMG_3137.JPG
    We've seen him here, fighting along side WWII soldiers, and I know this is (probably) part of the "Transformers have been here ages" montage but it seems Bee from the past is getting more attention than others. Could be setting up the solo movie!

    Also, i don't know, but this
    IMG_3136.JPG
    really looks like something Bees WWII squad would spray onto their helmets and vehicles! We might even find out they gave him the name "Bumblebee" for some reason.

    Depends on the use maybe... I recall a few of the VFX in the first film involved a life-size puppet of Bee, so I think something similar (on a short/medium level) can work out.

    a few ideas
    - The loss of his voice on the big screen
    - Reasoning for his many rivals (Barricade, Rampage, Soundwave, Stinger)
    - Maybe other humans he has been guardian to besides Sam and Cade
    - What made him join the autobot cause
    - His arrival to Earth

    This is still ultimately what I want the Bumblebee Movie to be at its core. That said, I definitely think we'll be seeing Bumblebee's connection to Sir Edmund Burton and some of his experiences in WWII in the movie. I'd really like to see it take place mostly in the 80's, where Bumblebee's fighting Starscream as a VW Beetle and Screamer's an F-15, and Barricade's there too in Prowl's original vehicle mode. It'd be a cool nostalgia-trip in that regard.

    Maybe Prowl could be there himself and he was like best buds with Bee and Hot Rod. Then Barricade kills him, starting the rivalry between Bee and Barricade.

    I want Starscream to be a part of this so bad. It's a prequel right?

    Considering we saw Starscream in the microfiche, I think it's safe to say his return is more than imminent

    How about an origin story where Bee is found in a remote part of Cybertron, born into slavery, taken in by one of the Prime's where he first meets another Prime, Optimus... No wait thats a terrible idea forget all that shit!
